Got String?

hemp twine a
Here's a good example of the color mycelia turns if it gets too dry. The hemp isn't contaminated. Note the bluing of the string, and the scales on the cap. Lots of primordia forming near the bottom though. It's crying out for a dunk.

Sorry, been out of town backpacking for three days....Nope....No nute solution or anything. It's plain old hemp twine from the Army/Navy store, soaked in tap water, then wrapped in foil and pc'd. After cooling, a few kernals of grain spawn were poured down the center of the roll. That's all. Here's another look.

It was a bit slower than casings....Took about a month to colonize and get first pins. Second flush was pinning within two days of coming out of the dunk. The hemp is full of good nutrition for the mycelia. I noticed after two flushes, the string is still at full size, and no damage is apparent where the fruits were picked from. I wonder how many flushes it can do???

i'd be interested to know that, too.
what would you guess the yield weighed so far ?

I have no idea on weight. I don't even get the scales out anymore. From the looks of that second flush, I'd say it covered the $3.99 price of the string very well though. The best thing for newbies is nothing to mix or measure. Just soak it in water, pc it, and inoculate. Can't get simpler than that. Lemme pull it off another time or two, and I'll write a simple tek.

I should order a syringe and see if the twine can be inoculated that way. That the WOULD make it easy as a newbie tek.

a foaf was supposedly bridge jumping in a river in oregon.and after a day of bridge jumping and hiking het got back home and threw his wet canvas adidas shoes in the closet.
well after forgetting about his wet shoes for about a month he went in his closet and there it was a cubie had grown on his shoe!somehow I guess in the hike he dragged his foot by some spores.well he didn't eat it(I mean it grew from a dirty saugy shoe,would you eat it?).
weird story.but maybe someone could pc.an old canvas shoe (hemp pumas,or adidas I know somebody has an old pair around),and stuff it with pasturized straw .would definitely be a great picture!thought I'd throw this story out there while your on the subject of hemp canvas/twine.
